in california that's training the next generation of students in this revolutionary technology. "if used correctly, this technology has the potential to change the game for manufacturing in the united states." the revolutionary manufacturing technology of rapid tech at the university of california-irvine is paving the way for small businesses to produce three dimensional prototypes on a budget. "for the small guy it's a little harder to get access to this technology, and that's kinda what we're here for. we want to give smaller companies access to this technology to let them be more competitive." rapid tech's printers are able to create objects - layer-by- layer - in three dimensions, and can print prototypes within a matter of hours. this saves companies time and money when correcting design flaws, and, more importantly, when going after market share. "first, when a company engages with us, we want to make sure that when they go out to get it manufactured, they have all the correct files and the correct data - all the correct tools to give to the manufacturer. it lets a little company r
